The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District in Denver, Colo., serves
approximately 1.5 million people and operates the Robert W. Hite Treatment
Facility, which includes two complexes for sludge removal. Metro selected
Carollo Engineers to provide $17 million of design services for expansion of its
South Secondary Improvements Project. The goal was to create capacity to
handle flows of over 200 million gallons of wastewater per day and meet more
stringent future discharge criteria.
Carollo used MicroStation, Bentley Structural, Bentley Architectural,
PlantSpace, InRoads, Project Wise, Bentley Navigator, S TAAD.Pro, and RAM for
Structural Analysis to develop a design incorporating many novel engineering
features as well as communicate the project vision and layouts to all
stakeholders. Design engineers had real-time access through Bentley Navigator
to evaluate potential layouts, coordinate with other disciplines, minimize
conflicts, and maintain efficiency.

This $300 million project provided interceptor sewers and three lift-pumping stations in Brighton, United Kingdom. M WH had overall conceptual
responsibility for the treatment works, pumping stations, and marine outfall.
M WH provided overall design coordination as well as detailed design of the
civil, architectural, and reinforced concrete at the treatment works and the
pumping sewerage systems’ station superstructures.
M WH relied on MicroStation, TriForma, PlantSpace, Bentley Architecture,
Bentley Structural, and Bentley Navigator to design systems serving a population
equivalent of 300,000. M WH also used Project Wise to collate, store, and version
control all of the CAD design files and drawings for this project and to launch
design models by a design team spread across multiple locations. The ability to
store files in one central, universally accessible data store proved invaluable.
